The Pretenders - Chrissie Hynde Boycotts Store Over Foie Gras

The Pretenders star Chrissie Hynde is boycotting a luxury London department store until bosses promise to stop selling foie gras.

Famous faces including Sir Roger Moore, Pamela Anderson, and Brigitte Bardot are among those backing a petition urging the owners of Fortnum & Mason to stop selling the controversial pate.

Now Hynde has joined the campaign by bosses at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals by calling on the store's boss Ewan Venters to personally intervene.

Referencing classic The Pretenders song I'll Stand By You, she says, "I'll stand by you, Mr Venters, just as soon as you stop the sale of foie gras in your store. Until then, I'll be avoiding Fortnum's like the plague and will be encouraging my friends and family to do the same."
